In partnership with LCC International University, we teach English classes, content-based classes, and enrichment activities, as part of the Summer Language Institute held annually in July. SLI students are teens and adults from approximately 15 different countries including Lithuania, Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, Georgia, South Korea, Belarus, Poland, Kazakhstan, and others. Teachers will work as partners to develop and deliver a three week class at elementary to advanced levels in line with program needs.
There are also opportunities for non-teachers to work as Resident Directors or Assistants in the dormitories. The RAs supervise residents and provide social activities. Another opportunity is to work with Spiritual Life. Each summer there is a chaplain for SLI who provides leadership for optional worship times and Bible studies.
You will receive a week of on-site orientation prior to teaching at SLI. Weekends will include opportunities to experience Lithuanian history and culture.
If you are a teacher or are a current student in an education-related field (Early Childhood, Elementary, Secondary content areas, Counseling, TESOL), then this trip may be for you. You will receive training before and during the trip, as well as feedback from regular classroom observations by experienced teachers.
EDU Teaching Trips may be able fulfill practicum/internship requirements so check with your university if this is something you would like to do.
We are currently planning and recruiting for this location. However, due to COVID, this trip is not yet confirmed. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions.
